ZURICH, Switzerland - Russian ice hockey player Maxim Mamin was banned for two years Monday following a positive doping test at the world junior hockey championship.

Mamin was 19 when he tested positive for a metabolite of nandrolone, an anabolic steroid, after a game in Pardubice, the Czech Republic, in January. His test result was almost three times the reporting threshold under World Anti-Doping Agency rules.

Mamin, who represents European champion Metallurg Magnitogorsk in Russia, was suspended by an International Ice Hockey Federation disciplinary committee.

He is suspended until January 2010 from all competitions organized by the IIHF or its member national associations.

The Russian team placed third in the tournament but its bronze medals are not affected.
